Alexander Sokurov is one of the todays' most interesting film directors. The documentary film "The Voice of Sokurov" explores Sokurov's cinematic world and life perspective through his personality and work. The film also touched on the societal meaning of cinema as well as the overreaching purpose of arts and artists.
"Alexandr Sokurov (born 1951) may well be the internationally best-known Russian director of his generation, but for this artist true to his own voice, the journey in the maelstrom of the System and in the midst of the power wielding and the corruption on the fringes of the film industry has been far from easy. At one time, he received help propelling him forward from e.g. his college Andrei Tarkovsky, who himself knew one thing or another of the depravity of the system."
